As expected when the local Manhattan 6'0" 270lb DT has committed to Kansas State

That's 3 KS players in 2 days. Hays, Coffeyville and Manhattan

I really like this pickup. He has such a quick first step. Smart player.

If anybody wants to see how he stacks up against last years best player in the state of KS(Turner Corcoron (#48 Nationally)), check this out.

I remember that game and he did look really good. I thought Corcoron looked bad too, feet seemed stuck in cement.

corcoron reminds me of the 5* prince recruited who didn't last a hoot here. i saw him first in the high school all-star game and he was stuck in the mud too. can't remember his name.

I only remember 2 highly rated OL recruited here. 5 star Chris Boggus and 4 star Matt Boss. Both never did squat and transferred out, only to do squat anywhere else. Both recruited by Snyder.

*Edit.... Went back and looked. Prince never had an OL recruit higher than 3 stars. Sure you aren't talking about Matt Boss (2003)?

I tried to find the same and came up empty as well with Prince recruits. He had a 4* DT I think, but I don't recall anyone on the other side of the line.

it was matt boss's name i was trying to recall. he was suppose to be great. i watched the all-star game, he got smoked, and never made it at k-state. not sure if he left his freshman year or not.

there was also a tight end from kansas who went to Missouri. i remember him being a 4-5* that snyder missed on before retiring. anyway, that youngster never did squat at Mizzou either.

just never know about these kids and how they develop unless they are true legit 5* dudes, like we have lost from the state to venables.

Is Josh Moore the TE your referring to? He was only a 3* TE from Olathe that went to Missouri in the 2015 class. Missouri moved him to DE and DT and played in 16 games before transferring.

Originally, he committed to Ohio State, then to Kansas then to Missouri. I have no clue where he ended up.

Xavier Kelly was the top of the class in 2016. He spent 4 years at Clemson (1 RS) and barely played. He is playing 2020 at Arkansas after transferring
Isaiah Simmons was another Olathe North kid, and het went to Clemson, but was only a 3*. He was the 8th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
